Meet DMS’ 2013/2014 Scholarship Recipients
Four young Caymanians — Asaph Scott, Kimberly Carlos, Shemila Eden and Chase Miller — have been awarded DMS scholarships to pursue their tertiary education at overseas universities for the 2013/2014 academic year.
The scholarships also allow the four to intern with DMS Organization Ltd. during summer breaks.
Asaph Scott is an aspiring actuary, who is in his second year of a three-year course of study in Mathematics with Actuarial Science at the University of Southampton in the UK. He worked as an intern at DMS Bank & Trust Ltd. this past summer and he noted that the experience gave him a more mature outlook on life.
Kimberly Carlos is currently enrolled at the University of Roehampton, London and is pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology, with the goal of becoming a clinical psychologist upon further study. Kimberly expects to intern with DMS during the summer of 2014 and says she is looking forward to the experience.
Shemila Eden began working with DMS in the Marketing department as a high school work experience student in 2008. She returned to the company full time in 2010 as Marketing Coordinator. In 2012, she was promoted to Project Coordinator in the Project Management Office, where she currently serves.
She has been accepted by the University of Tampa and will leave the Cayman Islands in January 2014 to complete her studies for a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and Management.
Chase Miller is a student at Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where he is pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting with a minor in Management. He will graduate in 2014 and plans thereafter to achieve his CPA qualification. He is also looking forward to interning at DMS next summer.
“DMS is pleased to support the learning and development of our young people who will become part of the workforce of tomorrow. These four scholarship recipients show much promise for the future and we wish them all the best in their studies,” said DMS Vice President for People and Development, Samantha Nehra.
